End of Day 2 - Event #25 $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low-8 or Better

• Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Norman Chad - currently in 4th

It's been a relative massacre today - We started with 172 players at 3pm today, just over 12 hours later and and a mere 23 players remain with a shot of winning Event #25.

The chip leader at the end of the day is Cory Zeidman who sits at the top with 217,500 while TV's Norman Chad is in fourth place. Other notables still in and hoping to win some bling include Kirill Gerasimov, 2010 POY Frank Kassela, defending champion David Warga, Mike Sexton, Karina Jett (who made the final table last year), Cyndy Violette and Kristy Gazes.

Despite this, we still lost numerous "name" players including Allen Cunningham, Barry Greenstein, Jason Mercier, Thor Hansen while our bubble boy was the man who declared the game "stupid" at one point - 'MrBigQueso' himself Jim Collopy, suffering double indignity of busting this event without cashing AND not being able to play the $5,000 Shootout because of his involvement here.

Tomorrow, we'll be restarting at 3pm and (hopefully) playing down to a winner. Who will make it? Tune into Pokernews to find out!

Jett Survives

• Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Jett: {K-Hearts}{9-Hearts} / {K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{7-Clubs} / {A-Clubs}
Viox: {5-Hearts}{A-Hearts} / {3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{6-Hearts} / {Q-Diamonds}

Karina Jett just survived an almight sweat to chop a pot with Chris Viox, her kings held for the high as Viox freerolled with a low and OESD which completely bricked on seventh.

Hit the Road, Zach

Zach Gilbert has been eliminated, his board of {7-}{9-}{Q-}{8-}{J-}{6-}{8-} was no good against his opponent's {A-}{10-}{2-}{7-}{5-}{6-}{10-} for tens and a seventy-six low.

With his exit, we're now down to three tables.

Star Gazing

Kristy Gazes was all in on sixth and Tony Ma was debating a call, finally making it.

Gazes: {2-Clubs}{5-Clubs} / {4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} / {4-Spades}
Ma: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades} / {2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{9-Spades} / {2-Spades}

Gazes flipped aces up and Ma sweated his last card knowing only a jack would allow him to scoop the pot, instead it was the {2-Spades} - the ultimate blank and Gazes moves back up to around 85,000.

Iced Berg

Sam Feinberg has been eliminated from the tournament, sadly the dealer was way to efficient and mucked the cards before we could see them.
